10 tips to better manage your asthma

If we cannot cure asthma permanently, we can now control the symptoms. Some precautions will help you to reduce the occurrence of seizures. Dulera inhaler is the one of the best option to control it.

Take regular asthma treatment

The treatment of asthma is a treatment that is sometimes restrictive in duration. Nevertheless, it is imperative to scrupulously follow the prescription of your doctor. Even if the patient feels he is feeling better, he must continue to observe his treatment to limit bronchial inflammation.

Measure your respiratory rate

Using a peak flow meter, regularly check the extent of your expiratory flow. This monitoring is an indicator of the effectiveness of treatment and a way to predict the occurrence of crisis. In the same way, count the number of uses of your inhaler and communicate this indication to your doctor.

Ban smoking and smoky atmospheres

It is imperative to ban the cigarette from the house. In addition, avoid smoky or dusty atmospheres: no chimney fires, barbecues, etc.
